Van Jones (former Obama official, current CNN Contributor) has a warning for Democrats following the State of the Union address. They need to take Trump seriously if they want to win. Trump has a great week. His acquittal is all but guaranteed, Iowa was a disaster for the Democrats, and the State of Union speech was strong. Trump is signaling that he is going to do something that Republicans have traditionally not done well — he is courting the Black vote. He is helping them in “real life.”
WAKE UP, folks. The #IowaCaucus was a debacle, followed by a strong #SOTU speech laying out Trump's strategy to win – which includes going for Black voters. This was a warning shot from the Trump campaign to liberals, and we need to take this VERY seriously in order to win. @CNN pic.twitter.com/bgBFms9jtN

To me, taking Trump seriously would be trying to put the Pelosi-speech-ripping thing behind them fast. Also, ending the constant talk of additional impeachment investigations. If Democrats want to win, they need to take their jobs seriously; no more stunts. Show the country what they want to do and how it will be better.
Basically, I think things are going as well as possible for a Trump re-election. I don’t think Democrats have the ability to be serious.
